Winter Masquerade Ball Blog Hop
Who doesn’t love a Masquerade Ball?! Ocean 2 Ocean Book Promotions is hosting this blog hop and I am thrilled to be part of it. Timing is actually perfect since the lovely ladies of Ocean 2 Ocean are also hosting a Facebook party celebrating the paperback release of THE WATCHMAN. I hope you’ll join us for both events – there will be games, swag and giveaways!
Now on to a little dark sexy fun from THE WATCHMAN…
The times were dark and desperate. The villagers lives, their very souls, were on the line. Were there witches among them? Only complete submission by the accused – to touch, to examination, to pleasure – might set them free.
Be this a witch?
Immoral Virtue, #3
Evil is found when evil is sought.
For when those in authority neglect to reprove sin, then very often the good are punished with the wicked.
– Heinrick Kramer, 1486, The Malleus Maleficarum
For yielding to the proud tears of an accused witch, The Watchman’s soul may have been blackened by evil. To prove himself unmarked, his body free of the witch’s branding, he must stand naked before all and submit to the governor’s thorough and shameful examination.
Though Giles Scott would resist the governor’s practiced and patient touch, only complete abandon might prove his innocence. And since the witch cannot feel, only Giles’ arousal can spare his neck from the noose. And so, he surrenders.
Yet screams from another chamber—perhaps pained, perhaps pleasured—awaken memories from Giles’ dark, torturous past, and the governor’s touch no longer teases but stings…much like the punishing bite of a whip against the flesh of THE WATCHMAN
Be sure to come back later this evening to read a naughty excerpt featuring the Governor and the ever lustful Mercy Paine.
And, of course, don’t forget to head back to the Winter Masquerade Ball event on Facebook for some fun and prizes. I will be giving away some swag as well as a digital copy of THE WATCHMAN!

The good folks at Ocean to Ocean sent me over to say “hi” to you. (I am surprised – they don’t usually like to let me out of their sight, lest I wander off.)
Oh too funny, Andrew! I’m so glad you found your way here. But please don’t wander off! There’s still so much more to come at the Masquerade Ball!
